It's a good thing to make fast pull requests!
If you don't want to merge it (right now): use brackets for commits and PR.

quote from the same PR by authmillenon:
“I’ve learned that it’s best practice to do it this way instead of open an
issue and then reference this issue in the closing pull request.”

The idea is that every PR opens a new issue on github, thus having two issues one describing and one solving the problem.
